Testing Criterias and Related Parameters of DC High Power Contactors
Electromechanical High Power & High voltage DC contactor are mandatory in several applications in the new energy field to ensure a safe and reliable galvanic isolation. All possible operating modes (from normal to unnormal) have to be covered. Depending on the final application, the load and lifetime specification could have a wide range. The dissertation focuses on the key parameter and related testing criteria, which have to be considered for the usage of DC-High Power contactors.
